"offers to re-mount it"? As in popup dialog box? That would counter the
purpose of the automounter which mounts a filesystem without any

IMHO Nautilus should never close windows on its own. If the displayed fs
is no longer available, displaying a gray shaded windows is a good thing
as it tells the user something is "wrong". 

If you will implement autoclosing of windows i'd realy like to see an
option to turn this behaviour off.
